CKUT TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE CHARTS::: December 13, 2016

unnamed

Hi friends,
Ian Svenonious (above, !!!) played a set here as Escapism over the weekend and it was one of the best things I’ve seen in ages – a perfect reminder that 2016 hasn’t been a complete disaster. Here’s hoping we ride out the last of this tough year as smoothly as possible and keep our chins up for 2017.

:::WHAT’S UP AT CKUT:::
I know we rave a lot about our If You Got Ears residency program, but trust me – December is a real doozy. Buckle up and prep yr ears for sound art meets club bangers (seriously) courtesy of the one and only Tristan Giardini, aka Triz aka Lux Pogo aka Rollrgrrl aka Thurible aka Champagne Pogo aka 1/2 Rivalled Envy aka 1/4 Ursula and Ugly Cry and 1/5 Cheap Wig and Grosser. Tristan is a local musician extraordinaire who wears many hats to cover up their ugly haircuts. They are a Virgo enthusiast that involves themselves in too many projects, and who loves rare sounds in familiar contexts. “Luxury Pogo” will explore the eclectic range of noises that attracts them to sound art and song, as well as the grit and warmth of different mediums that these sounds are recorded into. From crisp and clean pieces to crust and camp tracks, this show will explore a variety of both unpopular and popular music. Tune in every Wednesday in December noon-2pm, or catch it on the archives here
